For My Songwriting Friends
Ronnie Milsap has sold over 35 million albums with 62 singles and 40 #1 Hits. For his upcoming studio album, he has enlisted the help of American Songwriter Magazine to find a great track to cut.
Not unlike the age-old Music Row process of publishing houses picthing their songs to recording artists, we're asking songwriters of every level to submit their songs for consideration.
If you wrote (or you're thinking about writing) a great song and you know it'd be a perfect fit for Ronnie, we want to hear it. It can be a worktape, demo, or fully produced.
A panel of country music taste-makers and industry professionals (listed below) will listen. We'll select the top 25 songs and present them to Ronnie and longtime producer Ron Galbraith. Ronnie will select the winning song, recorded it, and release it as a track on his next album.
The 25 finalists will notified by August 31st.
This is a chance to get your foot in the door. If you already have your foot in the door, then... this is a chance to increase your odds. So send us a song. We're excited to hear what you've got for Ronnie.

Don't you just love lists? It's a commonly-shared trait among homo sapiens, for some reason. We're drawn to lists. Do you ...
